Pig Feed Pellets Production Process

Raw materials crushing.

Raw materials need to be crushed first before pelletizing. As to the materials grinding, you can weigh the raw materials according to the formula and then ground them in feed hammer mill, or you can ground them separately and then mix. These two methods are both OK and you can choose according to your self condition. The fineness of raw materials have a significant effect on feed use efficiency. The smaller the size of ground raw materials, the easier the gelatinization of materials, thus easier pellets to be formed. For pig feed pellets making, the screen sieve diameter of feed hammer mill is less than 1mm, while for weaned piglet is only 0.3mm.

Raw materials mixing.

Mixing is an essential operation for the whole pig feed pellets production line. Grounded raw materials should mix evenly before sent to be pressed.

Pig feed pellets pressing.

Pressing is the core process for pig pellets producing. Ring die feed pellet mill is the indispensable machinery to make feed pellets. Moisture content, temperature, and steam pressure during this process have a great influence on the quality of the final pellets. Pellet’s hardness will increase if the moisture content of raw materials is higher than 8-10%. The most suitable moisture content is 16-17%.

Temperature requirement is not higher than 88% which can range from 82℃ to 88℃ according to the pellet formation status and moisture content of the pellets. If the pelletizing temperature is low, the starch gelatinization is not sufficient, then pelletizing effect is lower; however, if the temperature is too high, the nutrient will lose seriously. Steam pressure has a direct relation to moisture content and pelleting temperature. Generally speaking, proper steam pressure—between 394 KPa and 490 KPa will generate a good pelleting effect.

Pig feed pellets cooling and packing.

Pig feed pellets are soft and hot after processed by feed hammer mill, so transfer them into the feed cooling machine to remove heat and moisture contained in the pellets becomes necessary. After cooling, pellets are dry and hard, they can be transported to the packing machine to be packed in bags, which then becomes convenient for storage and transportation.

Why Choose Pig Feed Pellets

Pig feed pellets first appeared in Europe, and account for most of today’s feed market in America, Japan, Germany, etc. The average level of the world’s feed pellets using is about 60%. Then why choose feed pellets for breeding? Generally speaking, there are two types of pig feed: powdery feed...
